Social Studies Labs

So I gave myself a goal this year. I want to add as many hands on, experiential activities into my class as possible. So far, they have been an amazing success! I blogged about this activity last month.

This week my kiddos got to experience what it felt like to be a hominid. They looooooved it and beg for more labs!!!

Neanderthal and Cro Magnon
Homo Habilis very proud of their horrible tower and their lack of fine motor skills.

    1. I just finished a killer class and didn't have time to blog. It is over, though, and I am back!

  2. I really like the idea of labs for SS. I teach seventh grade social studies and language arts. What is your advice on how to go about starting this in my own classroom?
